Hey, I’m Ashley Patrick, a personal finance expert and founder of Budgets Made Easy. I help busy moms create systems to save money and pay off debt so they can reach their big dreams faster and easier.

I was able to pay off $45,000 in just 17 months including $25,000 in student loans in just 10 months. I’m a Master Financial Coach and have a bachelor's degree in psychology and will help you get to the root of your money problems.

Since my journey started I have been featured on Fox Business, Yahoo! Finance, Food Network, USA TODAY, MSN, CNBC, NerdWallet, and many others.

“I would suggest that you take a look at what you actually accomplished in 2023. Even if it feels small, I want you to celebrate your progress because a lot of times we just focus on the negative and we feel like if we didn't pay off thousands of dollars in debt, then it was just a fail. It was just a year we didn't get anything done. But in reality, you may have accomplished quite a bit that you're not giving yourself credit for. And so I want you to actually sit down and give yourself credit for it. It's important to do that. It will help build your confidence and it'll help set you up for success in the new year as well.”
